I stayed for 4 nights with a family group as my son got married in Arequipa. The hotel is inexpensive so one can't expect luxury - the rooms are quite basically furnished but clean and the bed was okay. Shower pressure was poor in my room but others said theirs was like a power shower, so maybe rooms on the... More

Very pleasant experience, friendly and helpful staff, clean and comfortable room. Location is awesome, near to Plaza de Armas and almost every other attractions. Very recommended, we would surely go back to that hotel.

This place was awesome. They had a large the garden with great wifi that you could spend and afternoon in. The staff were very friendly and spoke Spanish slowly so we could understand (also they spoke English). Breakfast was a standard Peruvian breakfast - but sin avocado :( The location was about a 10 minute walk to the Plaza Del... More

Dear Guest. Spanish lessons are not part of Casa de Avila Hotel service. You can book Spanish and stay in any other hotel cheaper than Casa de Avila. We do have promotional rates for students (about half the regular one) but backpackers places are always cheaper. The hotel offers a beautiful garden, clean and safe individual rooms with private bathrooms... More

This was a great place to stay in Arequipa for a great price. It's only 10 minutes walking from the main square (Plaza de Armas) and the walk felt safe even at night. The rooms are basic but clean, beds are firm and the bathroom has hot-enough water. The garden was our favorite part, so relaxing! Breakfast was good and... More

Casa de Avila was a great place to stay. I spent two weeks in Arequipa this summer. The staff felt like family, the room felt like my own personal domain, the garden felt like another world. For instance, a few of my friends and I would go out for some fun and try to experience the city of Arequipa itself... More

This is a great affordable place to stay in Arequipa. Rooms are very basic but clean and there is a view and access to a nice grass lawn for sun bathing. There is a large breakfast room, activity room, Spanish language school and Peruvian cooking classes. Good location, short walk to the central Plaza de Armas. The staff is very... More

My boyfriend and I spent two nights here. It's a really welcoming, cozy place. Raquel, the manager was really helpful with answering questions, offering to let us leave our baggage when we traveled to Colca Canyon, calling cabs and making suggestions. We took the cooking class and loved it. The instructor was sweet and really knowledgeable and the dishes we... More

We were very happy with our stay in this hotel. We had seen reviews and photos on Trip Advisor prior to booking but were still surprised at how lovely and peaceful the outdoor garden area was - complete with the resident tortoise and even a couple of humming birds! It was a lovely way to spend an hour in the... More
